This past year, I coordinated Eastside Mural Projects, a series of four large-scale public murals commemorating aspects of Vancouver’s multicultural community. Covering over 8000 square feet, the murals were painted by more than fifty muralists and community participants to mark the 100th anniversary of Britannia High School. The murals are located in various locations in East Vancouver, and more background information can be found at www.eastsidemurals.com. Several murals are planned by Eastside Mural Projects for 2010.
‘Idea of North- Visual Variations’ (‘Norte-Un Concepto-Variaciones Visuales’) was inaugurated in March 2010 at the Galeria Peon Contreras in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico. An 80-meter multimedia frieze, this traveling exhibit is by seven artists from La Raza Artists Canada. www.larazaartists.org. The series integrates painting, drawing, printmaking, text and photography on Mylar ground, reflecting the collective artists’ perspectives on the north. This is the fourth Mexican project in which Richard has participated, continuing the focus on collaborating on large international projects.
‘Disappearing Alley’, a large woodprint by Tetrault, was purchased for the Office of the Mayor, Vancouver City Hall. Also, two of the artists banner works were the focal point of several events at the Olympic Village in downtown Vancouver.
Richard’s most recent prints, paintings and drawings can be seen in his Vancouver studio, located in Strathcona. His work is also in the galleries listed below. Please contact the artist directly to view work in his studio, or by clicking the contact link on the website menu.
